Midnight Sun Experience

Tromsø has established itself at the ‘Capital of the Northern Lights’ during the winter period, but during the summer you have the opportunity to witness the extraordinary phenomena of the Midnight Sun. The sun never sets between 20 May and 22 July and barely dips below the horizon between May and August, enabling you to enjoy endless days experiencing the surrounding nature and fun activities in the world’s most northerly university town.

DAY 1 Tromsø
Fly to Tromsø (via Oslo) and transfer via airport shuttle bus to your chosen accommodation. Depending on your flight arrival time, you could take the cable car to Storsteinen on Mount Floya for an Arctic inspired feast at the Fjellstau Café, and excellent spot for a dramatic view, whatever the season. Alternatively, see if there is a midnight sun concert at the Arctic Cathedral.
DAY 2 & 3 At Leisure
These days are free for your chosen excursions (see excursion tab for a full listing). Take to the sea by RIB boat or Kayak. Visit Tromsø’s husky’s, even take them for a walk. Take a coastal, history and scenery tour or try your luck at fishing and there are guided mountain walks to suit all abilities. For those who want a change from the outdoor pursuits you can simply enjoy the museums, bars and restaurants this vibrant city has to offer. We can also arrange car hire for you, should you wish to have a little more independence to explore the region. Many of the excursions are family friendly, and you will find that there is so much to see and do that despite the permanent daylight, you may find there are still not enough hours in the day!
DAY 4 UK
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before taking the airport shuttle transfer back to the airport in time for your return flight home.

Finally, you will venture onto the glacier (with your guide) in a strictly controlled area to witness first-hand the majesty and power of this frozen spectacle.
